The Odds

I just got this message: A French canadian guy came across a guestbook entry at a certain hostel in valpo. He was astounded that the entry happened to be yours, as he had bumped into you in cusco and el chantel. He then proceeded to tell us about your numerous bodily complications.. followed by the […]

The Incan Ruins Of Cuzco, Peru

My second contribution to the Volette travel blog is up. It guides you through the most interesting ruins of Cuzco, Peru (with pictures). You can read it here. I found that I liked Machu Picchu a bit more after writing and thinking about it. For more on Peru, check out my Peru travel guide.

Machu Picchu

I was going to pass on Machu Picchu but the peer pressure was too great. It was an expensive notch: $75 train ride to the town nearest Machu Picchu $12 round-trip bus ride to Machu Picchu $40 entrance fee $7 rip-off mini pizza in town That’s fine as I can say I took this picture: […]

Girl Vs Guy Travel

They were all along these lines: It was nice to meet you. You are very pretty. I hope I can see you again. juan@lovesgringas.com Juan My […]
